Is it June already? It’s time for the Synod Assembly. Please keep

Bishop Lee Miller II, the Synod staff and churches in your prayers as

they deliberate the business of the church.

It is June. The sun is shining. The windows are open. The air is warm.

It is June and it is delightful! Don’t you just love the breeze blowing

through and clearing out the stale air?

In our lives in Christ, the Holy Spirit is the breeze that blows through our lives; the Son shines in us. It is delightful. The gentle breeze of the Holy Spirit blows through and clears out the staleness in our lives. Do you ever need to clean up your faith life?

The first Sunday of this month is Holy Trinity Sunday. We celebrate

the love relationship of the three persons of the Holy Trinity, the

Father, Son and Holy Spirit. It’s like a dance which we have been

invited into. We are welcomed into this divine relationship.

In the hymnal is a song, Come, Join the Dance of Trinity. I love the

first verse:

Come, join the dance of Trinity, before all worlds begun–

the interweaving of the Three,

The Father, Spirit, Son.

The universe of space and time did not arrive by chance,

But as the Three, in love and hope,

Made room within their dance.

God invites us in. Can we experience a spiritual spring-cleaning?

In my devotions this morning, I came across these words from, which remind me to slow down and not rush through prayer and reading, “Remembering that I am still in God’s presence, I imagine Jesus himself standing or sitting beside me, and say whatever is in my heart, speaking as one friend to another.”

In these days of late spring and early summer, as our minds wander, let them think of you, O Lord; Creator, Redeemer and Sustainer.
